Bayer + Monsanto = A Match Made In Hell

Have you heard that Bayer bought Monsanto? Get the real story behind this highly concerning merger. Just passing along some interesting info.  You be the judge.


The past week in California courts have resulted in a HUGE win for validating the toxicity of the pesticide RoundUp (Glyphosate). 

Monsanto must pay $289.2M because RoundUp/Glyphosate causes cancer

For the past 8 weeks, San Francisco has been home to a trial in which a former groundskeeper with terminal cancer sued Monsanto Company for exposure to RoundUp causing his cancer.  Today the jury returned a verdict ordering the agrochemical giant to pay $39.2 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages for failing to warn consumers that exposure to RoundUp weed killer causes cancer.

A significant part of this case was based on secret internal Monsanto documents which showed that Monsanto that company employees “ghostwrote” scientific articles and paid outside scientists to publish the articles in their name.  This will be the first of many lawsuits, and hopefully the demise of RoundUp.

Ozone and the World Cup


Ozone made its way into the World Cup! Said to be one of the best soccer players alive, Cristiano Ronaldo, uses ozone to quicken his recovery.

Here is a short and interesting article (sorry it's in Spanish, you can use Google translate!) that talks about Cristiano Ronaldo and his use of ozone.  The short article implies that he uses ozone injections directly into joints and/or soft tissues to speed up healing and recovery. 

"Among the supposed benefits of its injection is an improvement in microcirculation, vascularization and tissue oxygenation, as well as work as an antimicrobial agent, anti-inflammatory and stimulation of the body's defenses, and a protection against cellular aging."

Ozone can be used for a variety of health conditions and even as an aid to world-class athletes! 

For those who are not already aware, you can learn more about the direct joint and/or soft tissue ozone injections we do in our office here: http://naturalkneetherapy.com.

A quick search of PubMed yields this study done in 2017. "Comparison between intra-articular ozone and placebo in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study".  The conclusion of the 98 person study was that "the study confirms the efficacy of ozone concerning pain relief, functional improvement, and quality of life in patients with knee osteoarthritis."

Interesting!

For more on ozone and how it can benefit you, please watch the video below or contact the office at 818-957-6909.

An interview with Dr. Yoshi

As you know, one of the treatment modalities offered here at Oasis Family Medicine is Regenerative Medicine, which includes Stem Cell Therapy. It is my ongoing goal to provide up-to-date educational information and insight to you so that you can continue to make informed decisions on your overall healthcare.

Recently, I did an interview on Stem Cell Therapy with the East Glendale Advice Givers™ where I talk about the untapped potential of this ground-breaking treatment for a myriad of health conditions.  From a personal perspective, I can sincerely say that Stem Cell Therapy has made the difference in the lives of my own family members, which I talk about in the interview linked below. 

It is true that Stem Cell Therapy may not be a feasible treatment option for everyone, and it won't treat every health condition, but in those instances where it can be used, it does provide huge potential for amazing results. I encourage you to find out all you can on the subject to determine if Stem Cell Therapy can help with your own chronic health issues.

To listen to the full interview (as heard on iTunes, featured on East Glendale Advice Givers™ Podcast), click to listen to the podcast below. You can download a copy of the podcast transcript here.

You can also get more info on Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy on our website here. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact the office at 818-957-6909.

CBD & Medical Cannabis


Recently, I have had several people ask questions about CBD oil, so I decided it would be good to share some educational material on the subject with you. Please read through the information and watch the video below :)

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is cannabis without the "getting high" psychoactive effect.

Cannabis Sativa is the same name for marijuana or hemp.

  • Hemp by legal definition is less than 0.3% THC. CBD is derived from Hemp.
  • THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – is what makes you “high” by impairing motor function and cognition.
  • THC content is what dictates the legality of Cannabis.

Research

As can be seen by searching PubMed, the medicinal and therapeutic effects of CBD are becoming more widely studied. Research clearly suggests a possible therapeutic medical effect for a number of conditions, as it is anti-inflammatory and modulates the immune system.

Main ways CBD can help:
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Pain
  • Immunomodulatory
  • Sleep
  • Seizures
  • Digestive issues, including:
    • Inflammatory bowel disease IBD – preliminary data is promising
    • Irritable bowel syndrome IBS – speculatively, may be more helpful for those with IBS – D (diarrhea)
  • Neurological issues
    • Anti-Anxiety
    • MS
    • Dementia / Alzheimer’s
    • Parkinson’s
    • Nerve pain

Cannabinoids and Autoimmune Disease


Benefits of THC

  • Per research, THC may be favorable over CBD for those with oncological involvement.

Contraindications to THC

  • THC – Do NOT take THC if you are prone to or have dizziness, anxiety, fragile psyche, or cardiovascular disease.

What to look for with a CBD product:
  • Where is it from?
  • How organically was it raised?
  • How clean was the processing?
  • Look for 3rd party certification of analysis, testing for toxins and pesticides.

Quality assurance is important

Side Effects of CBD


  • When taken orally, CBD can alter other drugs you may be taking, so it is worth asking your doctor.
  • Paranoia can increase. This is mostly a THC issue (MUCH less so with CBD).
  • Side effects can also depend on your genetics, as with just about every other supplement, herb and drug.
  • Too much of ANYTHING is bad (even Oxygen or Water). The same holds true with CBD, so common sense is great to employ as well.

CBD Dosing


  • "Start low, go slow."
  • 5-10 mg of CBD, dosed once to twice per day.
  • Re-evaluate after a week on a particular dose moving up by 5-10 mg each week to see if you need to increase.
  • Most people will end up on just 5-25 mg daily (but please ask your healthcare professional, especially if going for a higher dose).

IMPORTANT NOTE ON THIS SUBJECT:  While I am a physician, please consider this as just educational information and NOT medical advice.  Ask your healthcare provider (or Dr. Kuo or me if we are your healthcare provider) for specifics.

What's in YOUR Microbiome?

The Microbiome - What is it? Why should you pay attention to it? In short, it's your gut. And your gut health plays a vital role in your overall health and well-being. The microbiome is quickly becoming a widely discussed topic these days, and I'd like to share some valuable information that can "change the way you think" about gut health. It's true that no two guts are alike, so whatever diet/nutrition works for one person may not work for another. That's why it's so important to get an accurate picture of what's going on in your microbiome. Here's an excellent resource to do just that:



This is what you’ve been waiting for.  Conflicting food advice is now obsolete. New medical research claims that foods you once thought were healthy might be making you tired, bloated, sick, and inflamed. It all depends on your specific gut and what’s going on in there. Harness the power of our pioneering Precision Wellness technology to know exactly what you (and only you) need to eat to reduce inflammation so that you can feel better, lose weight, end cravings and have more energy. Our cutting edge technology allows you to find out the healthiest food for you so you can feel your best.  We put the power and the choice back in your hands.  It’s time to listen to your Viome.

Viome is the only company whose gut microbiome test can be used to accurately make personalized diet and nutrition recommendations. The reason is their unique technology, which no other direct-to-consumer company possesses or offers.

Some of the world’s leading health experts are saying this about Viome’s one-of-a-kind service:
Viome is a truly disruptive wellness company that makes personalized recommendations based on regular comprehensive analyses of your gut microbiome, mitochondrial function, and their interactions. There is nothing else like it. - Dave Asprey, Founder & CEO, Bulletproof
I became a fan of Viome when I was working through my own health issues. Viome uncovered information I wasn’t aware of about my microbiome, providing me with ways to optimize my gut health and pave the path to healing. I immediately started putting that information into action. - Dr. Mark Hyman, Physician, Scholar & New York Times Best-Selling Author
When I got my results back from Viome, I was absolutely stunned. There is no gut test that even comes close to touching the detail and the practical, easy-to-understand information about what’s going on inside your gut, along with personalized recommendations that you can easily implement. This test will change your performance, your health and your life forever. - Ben Greenfield, Author & Personal Trainer
Viome is the gold standard test we use before starting any disease reversal program with our patients. - Regan Archibald, Founder & CEO, Go Wellness

It sounds amazing, and it is. I have taken the Viome test myself and would strongly urge EVERYONE who deals with chronic health issues do the same. It is a worthwhile investment in your health and well-being. 

Because I want to help you utilize this amazing wellness tool, here's something special for you - Save $50 when you use this link to sign up for Viome.


If you have questions or want more information, you can visit the Viome website or contact the office at (818) 957-6909.

The Male Shot, Female Shot, & Hair Loss Solution

It has always been my goal to keep you up-to-date on the latest treatments and services available here at Oasis Family Medicine. So here goes :) In addition to Prolozone, we now offer Stem Cell Therapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma).

PRP therapy has been in use since the 1980s for healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles and is scientifically validated. A new and, for many, a more exciting use of PRP is for the Male Shot, Female Shot, and for Hair Loss (in both males and females).

PRP therapy effectively treats erectile dysfunction (ED). The Male-Shot uses all-natural, safe, nearly painless injections of a patient's own platelet rich plasma to rejuvenate the penis and stimulate new tissue growth, resulting in improved erections that are larger, firmer and more frequent.

The exact same PRP therapy process can be done for a woman to rejuvenate and revitalize vaginal and clitoral function, giving you dramatically improved sensitivity and significantly enhance your sex life.  It can also help with certain types of urinary incontinence. Ideal candidates for the Female Shot include women who seek stronger orgasms, more orgasms, or increased sexual desire.

And... PRP can be used for hair loss in both males and females.  I (Dr. Yoshi Rahm) even have had Dr. Anne Kuo inject my own head with PRP and Stem Cells to help stimulate new hair growth on my head :)

We are excited about offering these new treatments, and this is just to let you know we provide these services. For more information on PRP, as well as Prolozone and Stem Cell Therapy, please visit NaturalKneeTherapy.com. If you have more questions, please call the office at (818) 957-6909.
